O Nepoznatim Radovima / An Unknown Work

“The artists of this exhibition have a significant and long career…. Nevertheless, each of them at home has works that are rarely or never exhibited, works in the studio or apartment – somehow always left aside. These works probably did not fit in solo exhibitions of artists, or did not correspond to curatorial themes and concepts, or are perhaps not sufficiently reflect a trend in which they wanted to see the work of individual artists…. I focused attention on works from the time of the seventies and eighties of several artists such as Boris Cvjetanović, Antonio Gotovac Lauer (Tomislav Gotovac), Sanja Iveković, Jerman, Julius Knifer, Vlado Martek, Dalibor Martinis, Mladen Stilinović, Sven Stilinovic, Goran Trbuljak Joseph Vaništa. There are works on paper, photographs, artists’ books, films and videos. Paradoxically, some of the exposed ‘unknown’ works once were printed in the edition of daily newspapers, and yet no one remembers them and there is no account. A few of them to this day remain unknown because they were unavailable to the artists themselves… A few newer works are also exhibited – these are works by artists of the older generation who rarely exhibit at exhibitions of contemporary art and therefore just their newer works remain unknown…
– Branka Stipančić, Curator
